The mage of Anthem that does not associate itself with ground-walking peasants.
The mage of Anthem. Undoubtedly cool, and with a lot of userbase. You’re more of a wizard than a robot, using elemental abilities to subdue the enemy.
While the Storm feels ‘cooler’ but ‘less competent’ through the middle stage of leveling, gear bonuses later on allow you to truly be the mage, wizard, or sorcerer you dreamt of. By attuning your entire build to gear damage, you can have your Burning Orb instantly kill most enemies, or you can opt to build around gear cooldown, where you will rain an endless flurry of Flame Bursts or Frost Shards upon the battlefield. Not having to worry about remaining ammunition, or having the need to go down to pick up ammo drops can be a nice bonus factor to people that do not like to be limited by such factors.
Storm also offers by far the best support powers, by consistently priming the enemies with virtually no downtime. This can be used to boost the DPS of your squad, or be used to clear out groups of enemies instantly by yourself.
Heavy Pistol. "Hovering increases weapon damage by 200%”. The Storm javelin can make use of this weapon’s bonus nearly at all times.
Marksman Rifle. Has a chance to deal large electric damage. This gun, unlike the others, will not be crippled by the Elemental Conduit component and its variants that a Storm specced into elemental damage might like to use.
